Today, I received two items of note: the first is a Mini Mule BP, from Fahrney's. I like copper; 20% of my small collection have it in the body or trim. And the mini size is now very comfortable in these old, arthritic hands. I also received the latest Fountain Pen Hospital catalog, which shows the new Tulip for Team Fox pen, supporting Parkinson's research, an affliction with which I also deal. Begnning last July, Montegrappa provided my (75th) birthday present to myself, a Fortuna Moscow BP. This year, belatedly, the Mini Mule. Next year, I hope (I have contacted Montegrappa and suggested it), a mini Tulip for #77. What will they think of when I turn 80, or 100? Whatever it is, I expect that I will be lined up to partake. A fan not only of the product, but of exceptional service - a far cry from Visconti, for example. On the two occasions I contacted them, I was informed that I was intruding. I have nothing against the Pineider people, but Dante del Vecchio, his design abilities notwithstanding, is not on my Christmas card list!
